President Kenyatta highlights the Mo Ibrahim Foundation partnership with APRM at African Union Summit
The 27th APR Forum of Heads of State and Government Participating in the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM), chaired by H.E. Uhuru Kenyatta, was held on 27 January 2018, in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, under the theme: Revitalising APRM to Strengthen Governance in Africa.
H.E. Uhuru Kenyatta not only commended APRM member states for their continuous effort and the strides made in fostering improved governance as a vehicle for accelerated development in the last two years, but also highlighted some of the achievements the mechanism has made over time.
Adding to that, he pointed out how the mechanism broadened and strengthened its partnerships by bringing on board an additional two strategic partners – the Mo Ibrahim Foundation and the Africa Capacity Building Foundation – in addition to the UNDP, UN Economic Commission for Africa and African Development Bank.
“These partners brought added technical capacity and credibility to the APRM,” President Kenyatta stated.
He lauded the work of the dynamic Chief Executive Officer of the APRM Secretariat, Professor Eddy Maloka, a member of the Foundation’s IIAG Advisory Council, emphasising that under his watch, the APRM had undertaken a series of systematic, all-encompassing and sustained efforts that advanced the revitalisation agenda.
